at these three world leaders too. ronald reagan never made sure his time matched -- >> okay. this is just ridiculous. >> there you go. >> stungningly profind. >> let's go to politico, please. with us now -- >> also makes him superior to ronald reagan, right? >> whatever. >> the messiah has returned to israel. look at that. >> are you kidding me? >>> with us now is chief white house correspondent for politico, mike allen, here with the morning playbook. >> this is a good one. >> watch the live pictures while we talk to mike. i think we can walk and chew gum at the same time according to joe. >> i doubt it. >> mike, new report from politico suggest a number of big name democrats are not thrilled with the idea of ashley judd challengi challenging senate minority leader in conduct. some party leaders including former president bill clinton is trying to court another candidate. the kentucky secretary of state. the former president encouraged her to run assuring his and hillary clinton's support should she try to unseat mcconnell. judd under fire for a speech she delivered in 2010 she compared
of democrats and ronald reagan agreed to in the 1980's which is to clean out some of these outlandish special interest tax breaks tax breaks. and i see my good friend, senator levin, here tonight and he is going to outline just some of those outlandish tax breaks. we ought to clean them out and use a portion of those dollars to hold down the rates and keep progressivity. and in the two years after democrats and republicans did that, in the 1980's the country created millions of new jobs. no one can say every one of them was due to that tax reform effort, but it certainly helped. and we had senator enzi on the floor earlier this evening, and i've been working with her on something that i think really has been missed in the tax reform debate and that is senator enzi has said when are people going to start talking about the transition rules that you would need to actually implement the tax reform plan, because today in a global economy, and senator murray and i come from a part of the world that's so trade sensitive, here we've got senator enzi talking about something very practical that ought t
ronald reagan say? >> mr. gorbachev, tear that wall down. >> what does bill clinton say? >> i did not have relations with that woman. >> very good. what does john f. kennedy say? >> ask not what you can do for your country -- ask not what you can do for your country. >> pretty good. >> but -- >> okay. what does george w. bush -- >> but ask what your country can do for you. >> okay. what does george w. bush say? >> [inaudible] >> what does george h. bush say? >> read my lips. no new taxes. >> what does our main man, barack obama, say? >> yes, we can! yes, we can! yes, we can! yes, we can! >> very good. >>brian: ladies and gentlemen, a two-year-old. that's incredible. >>anna: we've got to get this kid on the show. >>steve: he got a little hung up on what john f. kennedy said but he knew exactly what bill clinton said. >>brian: unbelievable. i don't know if he know what bill clinton said. >>steve: he knew the line. >>brian: he even knew how to count. incredible. >>anna: 6:34. to your news headline. senate majority leader harry reid con conceding duet on the democrats -- con seethe de
in american politics. ronald reagan was president. republicans controlled the senate, not the house, but rage gain has been successful in getting things through the house. immersed a whole bunch evidence to say that there had been, i called it media realignment. that the media was getting more conservative or at least less liberal and i wrote a whole piece on the cover of the new republic. it was completely wrong. as it turned out. i had all of this evidence that i thought added up to something and it really did not. >> does it matter though? >> of course it matter? s. >> why? >> look at the 2012 bam campaign. >> you never changed your views and you lived around the liberal media? what does it matter? are they all sheep following the media says? >> oh, who? >> others. >> the reporters. well, there have been some who have come out. i remember charles when he was liberal. i remember mike when he was a pollster for a liberal democratic polling firm. so some people have changed. >> i am talking about the public? >> sure. >> the public, does the public see only liberal coverage and say, yeah, tha
for ronald reagan and some of us are proud to have supported the bush administration after 9/11 and fighting epimieses and the problem with the obama administration is not that it is too assertive. the problem is that we are retreating all around the world and unfortunately emboldening our enemies. if rand paul wants to run to the left of the obama administration he is tree to ned ahat in the republican minute. maybe this is more is support for that than i think but i doubt there really is. >> chris: nina, the president thinks bringing the troops home not in a rush but steadily and eventually is a winning message in the last campaign, frankly not talking about open-ended commitments. does the gop need to recognize and respond to a war weariness in the country? >> i think the drone issue and war we areness are two totally different issues. rand paul's war and drones is a war on a pretty successful fight against terrorism right now. i'm not sure where that gets us. i agree with bill that the gop doesn't lose by being a strong party of national security. what we -- what the republicans lost wer
about the relationship between richard nixon and ronald reagan during those years? >> there wasn't much. i mean, nixon didn't have much respect for reagan. he didn't think he was all that bright. i don't think he did much -- i think is putting more involved and other ministry should i had a personal experience with nixon when i lived in "washington post." i was in the outlook section, and this is when the first george bush was president, and we were saying, they're saying maybe he's not quite getting the arrival of yeltsin. i said why do we get richard nixon to write a piece for us. they said he will never utter the "washington post." and by gosh, he wrote of these. it was a pretty good one. i came in and i said we need to work up we called his office the next morning. i can't believe i spoke to. he was up all night working on it, and so we ran it. apparently, i was told it had some influence that brent scowcroft like the peace and gave it to president bush and it was a part of his policy. >> another question over here. >> thank you very much. my name is terry stevenson to either questi
governors and to modernize the message to people who are too young to have ever voted for ronald reagan. they're also going to implement a $10 million minority outreach program. and to that point, you might want to check out this brand new pew poll finding that 62% of american people think the gop is out of touch. when i say brand new, february 13th to 18th. this is something that the party leaders are openly admitting. joining me now is jake tapper anchor for "the league" debuting today. it's nice to see you. i want to ask you right off the bat. i said rnc is looking to nation's 30 republican governors and one of them who is extraordinarily popular, mr. chris christie, wasn't even invited to cpac. i'm sure i understand this. >> the governor of virginia wasn't who is conservative but shown that he's willing to work with democrats in the legislature there and that also has made him not popular among some party faithful. look, the truth of the matter is this is not a done deal what the republican national committee outlined today. people will say that first of all there's the minority out
. and that's not unprecedented. ronald reagan never went two terms, george w. bush took the tail end of his second term. but there has been a difficult relationship with netanyahu. and he goes at a time when the whole region is in turmoil. >> you're right, they're lowering, the white house is lowering expectations, the trip is largely to offset the 2009 trip that president obama took to cairo. where he made a speech to cairo and then did not go to israel, went on to buchenwald, talked about the holocaust, but missed the beginnings of israel. this is a chance to kind of, i don't want to say make it right. but to reach out to israelis in a way he hasn't before. he's not speaking at the knesset. he's speaking to young israelis at a convention center, he's doing things differently at this time. >> and what's the significance of him going to the weitzman statue. this was the leader of zionism. and that's anathema to many people in the arab world, but a way of saying i stand with israel. to israel it's important because it predates the holocaust. by centuries. millennium, it says that israelis ha
return the value of the minimum wage after inflation to where it was in 1981 when ronald reagan came to office. studies that have looked at the effect of the minimum wage on employment find negligible effects of modest increases in the minimum wage, interestingly survey of economists done by the university of chicago found that half of the $9 hour minimum wage would have a negligible effect on employment. but would raise incomes of low wage workers and by a factor of four to one the economists supported the increase. >> rose: when you look at housing, what impact does it have? >> housing is one of the bright spots we're seeing currently in the economy. and we have a chart in the economic report of the president where we looked at how much overbuilding took place in the boon years. we estimated back in 1998 council of economic advisors estimated we needed 1.8 million new housing units based on family formation. yet we were building well over two million, two and-a-half million so we had this excess stock. then construction came almost to a grinding halt. we had been working off a lot
is conservative enough. there was a -- listen, when ronald reagan was president, the people who represented what they thought was the -- you know, the real republican wing of the republican party, often complained about him, that he wasn't conservative enough to suit them either. sarah palin, despite having bailed out of public office, still has a following in the republican party, and you know, you criticize her, you hear about it. so does karl rove, he has influence with a lot of people who are prepared to put money behind his strategic thinking and the mistake that was made here that got rove into this trouble in my judgment is that when he and his group decided they were going to try to have influence in these primaries they announced that the people who felt that rove represented the failures of the bush years and so on, that was a red flag and you are seeing the reaction to it. >> bill: okay. but having talked to karl rove many, many times on this program, i can tell you that he is a guy who doesn't want a conservative litmus test to limit some candidates who may be more moderate and appea
more difficult to raise children frankly in this culture. and ronald reagan was good making what was known as reagan democrats feel good he was fighting for them and our party has gotten away from that. >> your candidate in the primaries, don't mean to con flat you and mr. santorum, you have different views, come from a different place, he was really the champion of cultural politics at high level republican politics, hitting still on issues about gay rights, on issues about sexual morality, on issues like abortion. i see the party as not moving away from those issues, even as some of the intellectual discussion says that stuff needs to be left behind. is that the party's future or only the past? >> i would say there's two things. one, the mistake or trap we fall in is we allow ourselves to be singularly defined by those issues. i would argue things like abortion is an important issue. however, we can't let our party only be about abortion. sometimes we fall in the trap of letting that happen. second thing, a lot of people look at demographics and election results and say we have

ronald reagan. i saw them when i went to the saddam museum in baghdad. the neocons came to power with an agenda for regime change in iraq. on 9/11 they were salivating. the general of the joint chiefs at the time told me rumsfeld, wolfowitz, all these guys started iraq, iraq, iraq, at the first meeting after 9/11. the fact is these guys had a mission to try to redraw the maps of the middle east. that's a fact. and dick cheney did not invent the idea of the executive branch being a dictatorship when it comes to foreign policy in america. unfortunately president obama has continued some of the things cheney, rumsfeld and these guys laid the groundwork for earlier. my god, cheney headed up halliburton for the 1990s. he had oil on the mind all the time. the irony is the u.s. isn't winning the oil in iraq. these guys failed at their own game, the neocons. >> mike, as you look forward at iraq's, from iraq's current position into the future, what are your expectations for that nation? >> it's a great question, martin. you know, it's the crucial question, as we think about this day. i wa
bush or ronald reagan, correct me colonel north, if i'm wrong, you worked for president reagan, i can't see a president doing nothing time and time again and the only people he seems to be nice to are radicals like mohammed morsi? >> and the united nations. what we've done, we've gone to the united nations well so many time, and what he's done is allowed himself and believe that the united nations was going to stop the north koreans, inter-continental ballistic missiles. they've done it and unless we say carefully, if you have a business that's doing business with either of these two countries, you cannot do business with the united states. >> sean: colonel north, let me ask you this, do you think the world by these acts of aggression, and that's how i view them. do you think they perceive barack obama as weak? >> what they're hoping for is american leadership from the front and they're not getting it today. >> nobody thinks america is weak and anybody who does needs to look at what we did in afghanistan. we put men on the ground, we put our money behind it and we've accomplished our
in your book, that in the ronald reagan, 1984 debate. tell us what happened. >> well, they had, reagan had a bad first debate and people were saying that he was confused and say that he was too old. and roger was brought in as a kind of a debate counselor for reagan and he told reagan, look, you're the president. you've got -- obviously you don't need to impress people with facts and figures, you need to be yourself. and i found out later, as i worked on this book for fox and his advice to everybody when they go on the air is to be themselves. and reagan took the advice and did very well in the second debate. >> greta: and of course, the famous line out of that second debate about mondale's age, at least, that's roger's line? >> i don't think it's roger's line, but everybody around reagan was afraid to mention to him that people thought he was too old and roger, who is not afraid of much told reagan directly, you have to come up with something that will address the concern about your age. and reagan came up with that, with that line. >> greta: which was that he wasn't going to make age an
or ronald reagan, can i see a president doing nothing time and time again and the only people he seems to be nice to are radicals like mohammed morsi. >> we've got gon to the oouts united nations. some times oh, good grieve. he's aloud himself and hope the united nations is going to somehow stop or north koreans. they've done it. iranians will do it, too. and this is unless they impose kinds of sanctions if have you a business doing business with these countries dmoukt business in the united states. >> do you think the world by these acts after gregs is how i view them, do you they they perceive barack obama as weak? >> they're hoping for leadership from the front. they're not getting it today. >> nobody thinks america is weak. anyone who does needs to look at what we did. we have put men on the ground. and accomplished our mission. it's time for the american foam say enough of the war. >> i see him as weak. i think the president is weak. that is a shame. because do you know what? america needs to be strong. if we don't fill the void and step up and lead from the front then i shoulder
. as ronald reagan had on his desk, you can get a lot done in that town, if you don't care who gets credit for it. >> so time is healing all wounds. >> absolutely. >> i don't care who gets credit for it. i agree with rick -- >> i understand. >> you need time, time is the key, in any kind of balance sheet recession, delevering doesn't have in six months. >> can i make a comment -- >> hang on. hear what mr. legend says here. go ahead, peter. >> all right, this whole wealth effect thing is very laughable. yes, there's a wealth effect. the federal reserve was looking for that in order to goose the economy. so what did we end up with? we ended up with a fabulous wealth effect in new york city, go there and try to buy a condominium, and san francisco, the financial center, go and try to buy a condominium. where's the wealth effect in the rest of america? it just has not worked. >> is there a world outside of new york? come on! >> energy-rich states aren't experiencing a wealth effect? florida's not experiencing a wealth effect? >> of course they are. >> no, they are experiencing a wealth effect.
covering since ronald reagan. and the first interview was al-arabi al-arabiya. and in cairo talked about a new beginning between the united states and muslim world. i think we've seen pan out a muslim brotherhood government in control and we misread the arab spring and the muslim brotherhood said they wouldn't run someone for president and they did. we've seen hamas stronger as well as hezbollah, islamic jihad. and we've seen incredibly unstable situation in syria. when i was there on a congressional visit and we sat down with president netanyahu, one thing he asked, he was concerned about iran and the dominance and occurred and we have the iranian guard in syria. and their march toward having the nuclear device so they can have dominance. >> sean: that's all true and it's gotten worse, leslie, after the suck up to the world apology tour. and king be abdullah, jordan, says it's naive, that the muslim brotherhood are wolves in sheep's clothing, risky for him. and this president is giving 1.5 billion dollars, and f-16 jets and tanks it a guy that views the israelis as the descendents of ap
, but ronald reagan never thought israel was worth the trip. nor did his successor, president george h.w. bush. then president bill clinton made up for that 12 years of neglect by visiting israel three times. and president george w. bush visited israel once in the last year of his presidency. so not every president visits israel, especially republican presidents, but modern presidential candidates do visit israel. barack obama actually first went to israel in 2006 when he was still an illinois senator. he went again in 2008 when he was running for president. you'll know chris christie is serious about running for president when he schedules a trip to israel. mitt romney went to israel last year in a desperate attempt to exploit a republican lie, that there was some kind of difference between president obama and it's really prime minister benjamin netanyahu about what the borders of israel should be. romney was aided and abetted in that lie by netanyahu, who is an old friend of romney's. they worked together 30 years ago at a boston consulting firm. as we reviewed last night, netanyahu left no
, everybody -- republicans i talk to go back to the days when ronald reagan passed immigration reform. and the problem with that everyone agrees was that the borders were not secure first. so republicans are nervous that that could happen again. and they want to make sure that doesn't occur. there's also another stumbling block in the guest worker program. how do you provide for guest workers to come into this country? that's an issue for democrats in particular. so there are stumbling blocks that would have been done years ago. but again political self-interest is at stake here. when that occurs, maybe they'll actually do it. >> all right. gloria borger, thanks so much from washington. >> sure. >>> let's talk a little b-ball. march madness, the ncaa tournament, well, it's off to a pretty incredible start. we are courtside with the cnn march madness express.

percentage of the white vote in 2012 than any candidate since ronald reagan in 1984. the difference is in 1984, if mitt romney had gotten 59% of the white vote, he would have been elected president. he wouldn't have needed an african american, a la teen oh, an asian. he could have won-- that would have been an absolute majority with 86% of the whole electorate. it's down to 72. not only the loss of lateen organization but the loss of asians. the real loz for republicans over the last three elections has been their total decline and collapse of their support among asian voters, high education, higher income, and there's a sense of anti-immigrant. i think david is absolutely right in his diagnosis. i think it's very encouraging. but i think there is some political motivation here that republicans understand if they're going to be competitive in a national election, they have to make amend and make fences, especially after mitt romney ran on self-deportation as an answer to the problem in 2012. >> woodruff: hence, the autopsy the chairman of the republican party announced, rolled out t
. when ronald reagan did it we had 7% growth in one year and that is the bold leadership we need but it's not a new principle. we don't have to reinvent ourselves in that way but we have to stand on principle and unless you stand for something people are not motivated to vote for you. >> chris: let's talk about what you stand about, immigration. you came out with your ideas for a comprehensive plan this week and since then you are taking fire from both the right and the left. you call your plan for creating a legal status. not citizenship, but a legal status, for the 11 million folks who are already here, illegal immigrants who are here but taking fire from the right because you oppose the e-verify system which would make it easier for employers to check whether their workers are in fact legal or illegal. why would you oppose that? >> that's not the main part of my plan. the main part is trust but verify, we have to have border security and conservatives always wanted border security before we had immigration reform and the amendment i'll add to the bipartisan plan will ensure that ther
. in the 80's college campuses were very liberal but lots of young people liked ronald reagan answered obviously had two terms in the white house. i guess i disagree with that idea. in fact, on college campuses today i think kids are pretty conservative. >> bill: here is why you are desperately wrong, juan. two wreensz. anti-vietnam was a very narrow cast. and you and i were in college at the time. it was centered on the vietnam war. it took a lot of colleges by surprise, the we hem nens of it there wasn't before that a history of left wing faculties. some were, some weren't. now, the very people who were protesting are running the college campuses. many have not eradicated their point of view. university of minnesota had recently put bill ayers, the guy who literally planted bombs in the 1960's on their faculty. >> right. >> bill: on their faculty. >> i try point out to people the ludicrousness of that the actual literal analog unrepentant abortion clinic bomber were teaching humanities course. would we think that was insane? >> bill: it would never happen in a million years in this c
anything. >> it was ronald reagan and jack kemp who supported the idea of the earned income tax credit so people who were poor wouldn't have to pay their money to the tax man so they could use their wealth and use their resources to build their income and become part of the middle class. are you saying you don't support that concept? >> i think you make the system much more complex when you start exempting this group and that group. the fact of the matter is, if we have a fair taxation system, the economy is going to explode. you're going to have plenty of money. if you want to do something for those people in terms of money that you want to give to them or some program you want to make available to them, i'm all for that. but once we start tinkering with the system and saying, let's change it here and let's change it here and let's make an exception for this group or that group, then we get away from fairness. >> we're going to leave it there. many thanks, dr. ben scarson, a always, sir, appreciate your time. all best of luck on your pending retirement. coming up on kudlow, new charges o
and this is something that ronald reagan said in practice, which means my 80% sfrend not my 20% enemy. the principles are sound. is this not a question of how do we change the party or the principles. what it is, it's saying we as a party, if we want to grow and we want to win and govern again, at the presidential level, we've got to look at times and said, hey, you may not agree eye us on every single issue that the party has put out there, but we're willing to include you in the party as long as you understand. >> doesn't this conflict with some of the messaging we've heard from cpac over the weekend, though? >> there are personal some speakers at cpac who don't believe otherwise. i would argue while cpac does represent a good amount of people that believe in the republican party. cpac is not the republican party and the republican party is not cpac. so i appreciate all the work they do out there. but that's one part of the party. i's a great part of the party. but, you know, we're not synonymous. >> and as the first word of the report says, the gop is a tale of two parties. we'll see how that goes

with ronald reagan. government was the problem and government had to be shrunk. as a result, we saw pensions going away, wages decreasing. all of the sudden, i was fresh out of college, my first full- time job, and now my healthcare was part of my income. unions -- host: if you could get to your point -- caller: my point is that the republicans seem to be very focused on robbing the treasury. theking the backs of working people. there is no respect for a wage- earner or a laborer. the only people they have to answer to are the corporations. guest: i think you're basically right. first budget's director outlined a strategy in the early 1980 posts -- 1980's cold starve the beast. the right wings have noted that even republican presidents like eisenhower and nixon, you cannot cut popular programs like social security or medicare or other things, highway construction. and government grew at a slower rate than under liberals but still grew. ofy came up with a strategy deliberately cutting taxes, deliberately creating huge budget deficits. and then we will cry, oh, my god, government is going bro
again gets -- i think you need a european ronald reagan and this is my own political point of view. we need something to stimulate the public sector at the expense of the private sector. >> one of the interesting things of michelle caruso-cabrera's point and the people protesting were the bank employees and they weren't the investors. tla there's something off here independent? >> do you think pol ronald reagan can come through for the politi politics. this is almost impossible. >> right now, we'll see. >> they're not moving to the right. >> so bottom light, in a tina market, what sectors do you want to be invested in? do you stick with what has been going up? what have been consumer staples and which are historically stretched valuations that the point or do you go into technology materials and even though you don't believe in the fundamentals of this market. >> i am more inclined to go for the stocks that are providing what the fed is taking away and i know consumer staples is expensive, but by the same token financial repression will be with us for a long period of time. i would avo
on the corporate side from 46% down to 34%. that was 1986. it was done in a bipartisan way. with ronald reagan and tip o'neill. and the idea at that time was to take our tax rate down to the point where it was competitive, meaning it was below the average of our global competitors. in the intervening 2 1/2 decad decades, guess what's happened? every single country of the developed world, the so-called oecd countries, our global trading competitors, every single one of them have gone in and reform theied their tax cod. they've lowered their rates but they've also made their code more competitive. every single country except us. so america's been on the sidelines while other countries have moved quickly to improve their tax code. why? because they want investment, they want the jobs. and what's happened is, sure enough, they're more competitive, capital is now flowing outside of this country, we're losing headquarters, we're in a situation where if there's a foreign acquisition to be made, those companies in foreign countries have an advantage because they have a more competitive tax code. our t

't add up long term. they agree with that much as president ronald reagan and speaker tip o'neill agreed with the very same notion back in 1982 and 1983. the numbers weren't adding up long term for social security, and something had to be done. and some painful decisions had to be made in the early 1980's. and to this day we thank god for president ronald reagan and speaker tip o'neill for having the bipartisan courage to do the tough things to make the tough decisions and adjust an important program so that social security has been saved for the past three decades. we need that kind of statesmanship out of the white house today. frankly, we need that kind of leadership out of the white house. you know, we're calling for bipartisan action. i think it's worth noting -- and it pains me to say this -- for the first time in 92 years we are considering a budget without seeing a plan from the president of the united states. he announced just last week that he was just going to wait in sending us his budget plan. it will be two months late by the time it arrives, according to the president's ow
. >> ronald reagan faced these challenges because he had to deal with a badly broken budget process that was a product of the 1974 act. one of my responsibilities was to draft the decision for reagan called the budget process reform act that would eal with these things. i introduced it. we had over 200 sponsors. we had a bipartisan sponsorship in the senate. as you can see from problems we are experiencing, the process has never changed. if you want to find something that is capable of being completely bipartisan, multi-partisan, omni-partisan, it is fixing the budget process in a neutral way, because once you subtract everybody's passionate ideology, it is easier to come to agreement about putting a whole thing in a box and making sure there are priorities. making sure the system has teeth, because the big problem is you can blow off the process and people do. >> we started a few minutes ate, so we have time for audience questions. if anybody has a question, please raise your hand. i will ask the same thing of you, that when you stand, identify yourself, and if you have a question
for ronald reagan and for george h.w. bush. so he's really -- he started out as a political consultant. he's certainly a republican. he's certainly a conservative. that's reflected in fox news. i did a quiz with him that a professor at ucla had cooked up to measure conservativism versus liberalism. and he took it and so did i, by the way. and it turns out that he is more conservative than the network. and he agreed that that's probably true. >> so he's obviously very conservative in that position that he has, it filters down, i assume, on the network. i want to play a clip. this is sarah palin. she used to be a fox news contributor until the last election. this is what she said at the conservative political action conference that took place in washington this past weekend. >> if these experts who keep losing elections, yet keep getting rehired, raking in millions, if they feel that strongly about who gets to run in the party, then show should buck up or stay in the truck. buck up and run. the architect can head on back to -- [ cheers ] -- they can head on back to the great lone star state
, appointed by ronald reagan in 1987, but he's the author of the court's two most important gay rights decision. lawrence v. texas, which said that states could no longer ban consensual sodomy among consenting adults and the romer case from colorado. so he is certainly the most likely of the five republicans on the court to join the four democrats, at least on the defense of marriage act case, if not also on the proposition 8 case. there are two same-sex marriage cases to be argued next week. >> so, jimmy, if things don't go your way, if the justices like, you know, i'll just shorthand it, rule against same-sex marriage, rule out its constitutionality, what will you do? >> well, this issue is being talked about in every state. and the tenth amendment leaves marriage and family law to the states. and i think that there will be a state-by-state recognition that gay people should have the opportunity and the ability to get married and that will take just a longer conversation that we're having as a nation. and that's what we'll do. we'll continue to take it state by state and show that ma
egregious obvious example of that but even ronald reagan had to raise taxes seven times due to the fact that their other policies were shrinking the middle class. now when i say their economic policies are unsuccessful, that's because from my point of view, i want a healthy, thriving middle class. the progressive side of things liberals in this country, while we certainly care for the poor, we don't do it at the exclusion of the middle class our the exclusion of millionaires. but the middle class has been squeezed so horribly by the -- the -- you know, the promise of trickle-down economics and the chicago school of economics it just -- i mean from -- something as -- the heavy side of it and the shock doctrine, to the crap idea that somehow if you just let the job makers not pay taxes they will hide all of their money in vegas rather than the cayman islands and we'll all live off of the interest it's absurd nonsense that it's the bootstrapers and that anybody who finds themselves with cancer is just lazy ultimately in some way. it's their fault for having a crap
, hunger has been getting worse since the presidency of ronald reagan. we almost eradicated hunger in america in the late 1970's, but hunger has been getting steadily worse in the decades since. but the great recession, the worst economic period we've faced since the great depression, resulted in millions more people hungry. millions of people who had to turn to snap as the safety net that prevented them from going without word altogether. now, recognizing that hunger is a real problem and we need to end hunger now, i would hope that any budget proposed in this congress would at the very least do no harm for those that are struggling the most in our economy. yet, the ryan budget slashes snap once again. this should come as no surprise. this is basically the same budget he's introduced over the past few years and the same budget that voters have rejected over again and again. yes, mr. speaker, this is the same budget that turns medicare into a voucher, the same budget that repeals the affordable care act and the same budget that gives even more tax breaks to the wealthiest americans
the definition. but what i'd say -- i'd say what we have now is de facto amnesty. jon: yeah, the fact is ronald reagan signed the legislation in the mid '80s that was going to fix the immigration problem once and for all, and here we are 20 years lateerer, more than that, with, you know, 11 and 12 million illegal immigrants in this country. >> well, those events of the '80s still haunt the immigration debate today. an amnesty was given out, the border was not secured, and in the 2000s, especially under the administration of george push, there was a huge increase in the number of illegal immigrants. the one thing republicans do agree on is they need to do something about this. even the ones who think border security only is the way to go, they all feel they have to do something about it. the problem just cannot continue to exist as it has for the last decade. jon: well, and the speeches, maybe the presidential campaign speeches continue. we'll see how long it takes to get some legislative language out there. byron york, thank you. >> thank you, jon. jenna: well, a major american city dealing wit
, remember what happened in 1986, ronald reagan had immigration reform, they call it amnesty and we had people pouring across the porous border. that cannot happen again. then republicans have to try to figure out a way to spread that needle. are they offering citizenship, even though it's a long pass, or are they just going to offer some kind of legal status in this country? rand paul spoke the other day. he did not use the worth citizenship, though he clearly support immigration reform. that's going to be a challenge for republicans to figure out where they're going to be on the question of citizenship. >> just don't call it amnesty. because the base hates that word. >> oh, they do. they now say reagan provided that. >> he did. >> yes. >> thanks very much, gloria. >>> when we come back, it's taken more than 35 years, but a pioneering spacecraft has now gone beyond the solar system. ♪ (train horn) vo: wherever our trains go, the economy comes to life. norfolk southern. one line, infinite possibilities. great first gig! let's go! party! awwwww... arigato! we are outta here! party.....
indicates that in the words of -- or play on words on what ronald reagan said, we can't even trust yet, much less verify, but we do have to test the proposition that this can be resolved diplomatically. and if it can't, then i've repeated to bebe what i said publicly and that is that we will leave all options on the table in resolving it. [ inaudible ] >> welcome, mr. president. on your way back to washington on friday, what will you consider a successful visit, convincing the israeli leaders that they can rely on you, on the iranian -- especially we learn there are differences between israel and the united states concerning the enrichment of the uranium or convincing both sides, israelis and the palestinians, to revive the floundering negotiations dividing the peace process, floundering peace process? >> well, my main goal on this trip has been to have an opportunity to speak directly to the israeli people at a time when obviously what was already a pretty tough neighborhood has gotten tougher. and let them know that they have got a friend in the united states, that we have your back, that
. when ronald reagan came in and we didn't have any money, we watched every dime we spent. former deputy attorney general of the united states, larry thompson of atlanta, and i was united states attorney in alabama, we were such dyed in the wool reaganauts, when we went to a conference, we roomed together, separate beds. we thought it was cheaper. it would save money for the taxpayers. this kind of mentality needs to get back into what we are doing. i would just say that it's time for us to confront it. the vision of the members of this side and i think a lot of members of that side is not that far apart. i want to be clear about a couple of things. this budget needs to be put on a path to balance. it can be done without cutting spending in any dramatic way. all you have to do is reduce the rate of growth in spending. the budget will balance in ten years. we need to do that. we need to plan to do that. as i explained before, the debt is already pulling down economic growth in america. it's pulling down the growth that we have. the debt has reached such a level, 104% of g.d.p., our gross

of ronald reagan that the number one goal of the federal government is to have an balanced budget as if every family has an balanced budget. i'm in pretty good shape but i owe a lot of money too. i have a mortgage here and a mortgage in california and a car debt. >> over current spending levels over the next ten years, you are talking a decade of above 95% debt to gop issue. >> bill: but the deficit is coming down? >> sure. but economists will tell you that the debt is the worry not the deficit. >> wouldn't they also say that's not the biggest problem we face? we're trying to stimulate ourselves out of the -- >> bill: yes, but john boehner is talking about balancing the budget. he is not talking about getting rid of the national debt, he is talk about balancing the budget in ten years. and jobs it seems to me there are a lot of more important problems, and one of them is we still have almost 8% unemployment. i would say that would be getting people back to work priority number 1, and maybe you can't balance the budget until you do. >> uh-huh. one interesting
